This is the best Chris Ryan book I have read yet. His earlier novels had interesting stories, but they were not well crafted as writing. This one has an interesting plot, a reply flawed but admirable hero, and plenty of "twists in the tale". Like most action novels, parts of the story strain credibility, but if you suspend your disbelief just a bit, you will find it very entertaining.

Mindless and gratuitous violence thinly justified as revenge. Yuck.
The TV series is the same.
